by Richard Wurmbrand
This dramatic testimony shocked the Western world! After spending years in underground prison cells and solitary confinement, enduring inhumane tortures, Richard and Sabina Wurmbrand emerged with the testimony of today's Christian martyrs. This edition features testimonies from Christian leaders and an update on the work of the Voice of the Martyrs.
Months of solitary confinement, years of periodic physical torture, constant suffering from hunger and cold, the anguish of brainwashing and mental cruelty --å these are the experiences of a Romanian pastor during his 14 years in communist prisons.
His crime, like that of thousands of others, was his fervent belief in Jesus Christ and his public witness concerning that faith.
Meeting in homes, in basements and in woods --å sometimes daring to preach in public on street corners --å these faithful souls persisted in their Christian witness knowing full well the ultimate cost of their actions.
This is their story --å a classic account of courage, tenacious faith and unbelievable endurance. This history of the Underground Church reflects the continuing struggle in many parts of the world today.
"This book was singularly instrumental in awaking the conscience of the free world to the horrors experienced by our brothers and sisters behind the Iron Curtain." --å Charles W. Colson, Prison Fellowship
"The written and spoken message of Rev. Wurmbrand is one which needs to be published and broadcast through every available channel of communication today. We thank God for the eloquent pleas and warning sounded out by his powerful best-seller, Tortured for Christ." --å The late D. James Kennedy, Ph.D., Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church
"Tortured for Christ is still as important today as it was 30 years ago in calling attention to the plight of persecuted Christians in the modern age." --å Frank R. Wolf, former U.S. congressman
